It’s a winter nature Friday here in Minnesnowta. The past two weeks nature has been good to us, bringing on the Arctic blast last week, and lots of fresh, fluffy snow this week. We are having a blast. Even on an early morning walk in the deep stuff, I have a good time.
Bailie and I have run into one issue now that we have lots of snow. We don’t have anyone to pull us around in our sled. Our yard is pretty flat, so if we sit on the sled, it goes nowhere super fast!
Five years ago in 2014, some of you may remember, Katie was the family sled dog. She pulled Emma and Bailie around the yard in the sled. Bailie was still a young pup at the time, but she remembers it well.
We have decided to hire a sled dog to help us out. We are putting this add online and hope to find a good boy. Of course, girls can pull sleds too, but Bailie and I are kind of into boys. We decided a handsome sled dog would be the best fit. Do you know of anyone?
As you can see, we are suited up and ready as soon as the prince of sledding arrives. If he needs to use a pulling harness, he will have to bring his own. Together we are only about seventy five pounds, so it should be an easy job for a real guy!
In the meantime, I took some photos of nature in our yard in the winter. I’m calling these winter hydrangeas.
We sure could have used this look on the pine trees at Christmas time.
Our favorite winter nature site is the birch tree. Isn’t it fun how the snow is trapped in the peeling bark?
If you are wondering how we water things in the winter, we don’t. The hose is never hooked up to the spigot in the winter, and the whole thing is buried in snow anyway.
Now it is time to wait for a dreamy sled dog to come by and pull us in our sled. Until he arrives, I’ll be the lookout hound on top of this little hill, and maybe do some sledding too. PS: The lens was not dirty, it was snowing a lot when we took most of these photos.
Our friends at Living Laughing and Barking in Our Backyard is hosting a nature Friday blog hop for the winter. We are joining because we are showing off our winter nature here in Minnesnowta.
